His Presence

fruit of spiritThere are times when the Lord’s Presence is obvious to me. There are other times when I’m praying for Him to “show up and show off”! In tasting or experiencing His presence changed my perspective on EVERYTHING. I now look and long for Him daily.  I can only imagine what Ezekiel felt when the Spirit of God picked him up to show him the temple. Check this out….

Then the man led me to the outer east gateway, 2 and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. It sounded like the roar of rushing water, and its brightness made the earth shine. 3 The vision I saw was like the vision I had seen when the Lord came to destroy the city and also like the vision I had seen by the Kebar River. I bowed facedown on the ground. 4 The glory of the Lord came into the Temple area through the east gateway.
5 Then the Spirit picked me up and brought me into the inner courtyard. There I saw the Lord’s glory filling the Temple. (Ezekiel 43:1-5 NCV)

The Presence of the Lord here on earth is just a taste of what we will experience when we see Him face to face! Our fears will be gone; our failures forgotten; our imperfections made perfect. I don’t think we will think of ourselves at all as we will be so impressed with Him and His glorious Presence!  I still want to experience His Presence today and every day in my life!

Israel Houghton has a great song that expresses my desire to know Him. The song is called “Your Presence Is Heaven To Me”.  The words of this song are the cry of my heart this morning.

Who is like You Lord in all the earth?

Matchless love and beauty, endless worth

Nothing in this world can satisfy

‘Cause Jesus You’re the cup that won’t run dry

 

Your presence is heaven to me

Your presence is heaven to me

 

Treasure of my heart and of my soul

In my weakness you are merciful

Redeemer of my past and present wrongs

Holder of my future days to come

 

Your presence is heaven to me

Your presence is heaven to me

 

All my days on earth I will await

The moment that I see You face to face

Nothing in this world can satisfy

‘Cause Jesus You’re the cup that won’t run dry

 

Your presence is heaven to me

Your presence is heaven to me

Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus

Your presence is heaven to me

Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus

Your presence is heaven to me

 

Pressing On!
